  1. Djokovic and Azarenka are the defending champs – Djokovic is 3-time defending and Azarenka is 2-time defending! πŸ™‚

    My pre-draw gut feeling is that both will not defend…. Rafa and Serena are my pre-draw picks!

    • Djokovic definitely has a better draw than Nadal does, though.

      Nadal’s –

      round 1: Tomic
      round 3: Monfils
      round 4: Hewitt (though he might well not make it that far)
      quarter-final: Del Potro
      semi-final: Murray (though he also might well not make it that far)

      That’s a really tough draw.

      • Rafa really got a rough draw, but I thought the same in SW19 and USO 2013 and each went in different directions!

        I might actually go with the cliched “Draw is only on paper” statement, Will be fun to see how the draw unfolds πŸ™‚

        • He should still make the final, and it could clear up for him. For example, although he’d beat Hewitt, it could be a tough match, especially given the crowd, but Nishikori might well beat Hewitt, and Nishikori would be an easy 4th round match. Del Potro might actually beat Nadal, but he also might lose to Raonic, and Raonic would be an easy quarter-final for Nadal.

    • If Youzhny has recovered from his injury, I think I fancy him for a semi-final slot. Breaking ground in a Grand Slam at 31 isn’t easy, but I think he can do it.

        • It would be fun, but I wouldn’t bet on Haas getting past Berdych at all. In fact, I am verging on saying he won’t get past Roger-Vasselin in round 2.

          To be honest, I’d expect Haas to drop out of the top 20 this year, unfortunately. Even Agassi declined a great deal in the year he turned 36 (and both are born in April).

          • I can totally understand where you are coming from but Haas doesn’t nearly have the miles Agassi had at that age, did he? I am thinking Haas will start strong, may be decline will set in mid-season!

  2. @Toby: LOL! that’s true, but are there many Tomic fans around? after that father incident, he might have even lost the few fans he had πŸ˜€

    As for Aggie vs Caro, Aggie has got a lot of variety and both are not much reliant on power πŸ™‚

    • Wozza’s one of the less entertaining players on tour, though, and I think Radwanska more fun to watch against someone making more of the play, not less.

      I’m sure Tomic has a lot of fans in Australia! Do you think he’ll win a set against Nadal? I think he might well do so, especially if it’s the evening match.

      • @Toby:

        Tomic surely has a lot of fans in Aus, I am positive he will win a set, unless 2010 Rafa or 2013USO Rafa turns up. Surely this will be a night match, no? πŸ™‚

        Caro-Aggie – you do make a good case πŸ™‚

        • Haas hasn’t played as many matches, although he has played over 850, but he has been around almost as long as Agassi had. In 1997, he made the semis of Hamburg, just a month after his 19th birthday. I suppose he had even more time off than Agassi, but the crucial factor will be whether he stays injury-free. Agassi could have done much better in 2006 than he did but for injuries. Put it this way: his last ever career victory was against the world #8!

  3. Awesome comments, I missed the fun damn the time zones! I think it would be straight set win for Nadal. What do you think would be the greatest upset? Kohlschreiber upsetting Isner?:)
